List Description

This list of 48 ranked peaks in New Hampshire's White Mountains matches closely to that used by the Four Thousand Footer committee of the Applachian Mountain Club. The committee uses an "optimisitic" prominence threshold of 200 feet, which, in terrain covered by maps with 40-foot contours, is equivalent to the 160 feet of "clean" prominence used on this site.

The only discrepancy between the ranked summits on this list and the official 4000-footer club list is that the official list includes South Hancock but not Mount Guyot. This seems odd to me, since Guyot clearly has the exact same prominence as nearby West Bond, an official peak, and South Hancock clearly just misses the 160 foot clean prominence cut-off by 1 foot.

This list is a very popular peakbagging endeavor, with over 6000 recorded completers. All summits are reached by maintained hiking trails except for Owls Head, where a well-used herd path climbs up a steep landslide to the summit area. Isolation, Bond, West Bond, and Owls Head are the most remote from roads and the only ones that most hikers might not attempt as a day-hike.

The White Mountains (by most definitions) extend into Maine, so it should be pointed out that Old Speck would be on a theoretical "White Mountain 4000-foot Peaks" list of 49 ranked summits.
